The field order has changed since the last version. In 1.6.4u1: static var m_BlinkLength = 24; static var m_NumberBlink = true; static var m_BlinkSpeed = 4; static var m_Divider = 1; In 1.6.5: static var m_NumberBlink = true; static var m_Divider = 1; static var m_BlinkLength = 24; static var m_BlinkSpeed = 4; Why? They are not sorted neither in 1.6.4u1, nor in 1.6.5, but the order is diffrent. It would be great to have a deterministic field order, usually i compare the decopmiled files of the diffrent versions (to find bugs:)) Maybe you can sort them alphabetically.
In my opinion would be better to not sort them at all, but read them as they lay in bytecode preserving same order.
Ok, but why is the order diffrent in v1.6.4u1 and v1.6.5? The source swf file is the same. (scripts\__Packages\

Yeah, this is not good, I just saying do not add alphabetical sorting, just fix this different order and keep original order at all.
Different sort is there probably because class uses hashmap to store vars and hascode/equals method of some objects changed between the versions so it is sorted differently. In next release I will use List instead of HashMap, the ordering should stay same. Ordering of fields in AS2 in FFDec: 1) functions 2) static functions 3) vars 4) static vars In the future maybe I can keep original order in the file, but this will need a lot of changes.
